Hilton withdraws from Cape Town CBD hotel

Posted on 12 July 2020

Hilton has withdrawn from managing its hotel in Cape Town. Owners of the asset, Millat Properties, announced the news on Friday [July 10]. Millat will assume control of the hotel in Cape Town as of Sunday [July 12].

‘Millat Properties confirms that its property located at 126 Buitengracht Street, Cape Town, will no longer be managed by Hilton Worldwide. It is disappointing that our relationship with Hilton has come to an end, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, when South Africa’s primary tourist destinations and its people most need support,’ said Millat in a statement.

Millat has shared plans to upgrade the hotel’s offerings, including redesigning rooms, in order to again deliver top-quality experiences for its guests in the future.

The group plans to work on multiple design concepts and fully equip the hotel to meet the new travel demand to visit Cape Town, which would hopefully return to the pre-pandemic data that has shown an upwards year-on-year trend.

‘In the interim, we will pursue discussions with multiple international brands and first-class operators. Considering the unique city centre location and with Cape Town’s positioning as a preferred local and international destination, we are confident that we will secure a prosperous partnership with a new brand considering the deep experience and relationships we have cultivated in this industry.

‘Cape Town is the second most visited city in Africa, and the revitalised site will bring something new and special to the city’s already spectacular tourist offering,’ the statement concluded.

Hilton continues to welcome guests at the DoubleTree by Hilton Cape Town Upper Eastside.
